The Entertainer

Grant and Megan, with their two teenagers, wanted their Epsom bungalow to become a lively open family home, with space for everyone including the family labradoodle. They were also keen to extend and modernise their home, whilst staying true to some of the bungalow’s original features.

MLB was happy to take on the challenge of this build – and at times we had to be really creative. The family stayed during the renovations, which meant we needed to work around them and their furniture – including a piano – which we moved several times! We opened up the home by removing walls and installing steel beams, which created a new open plan kitchen, living and dining area that flows out to the deck.

All of these challenges were overcome and the house completed. As you walk through the home it is clear that there have been renovations, but the extension is so seamless it’s hard to know where the old bungalow ends and the new extension starts.

What a house Grant and Megan’s family have now! They love the indoor-outdoor flow with the entertainer’s deck, complete with pizza oven – a real focal point for outdoor living.
